Hi @HotCakeX, we are aware of this.  We are still evaluating the need for this feature.  Is there a specific scenario that this enables for you?  Thanks - Elliot

Hi, thanks for the reply, yes for example in the photo I shared in my post you can see the search result of popular things like movie titles, celebrities, countries, cities etc are shown with a photo next to them and a short description, to make the search results kind of rich.

Yes obviously, It is supposed to improve the search experience, those who don't want it can it turn it off, but this should definitely be a feature
